A- poured into a snifter. Pours pitch black, nearly opaque. Creamy tan head that has one-finger retention long after the pour, thick patches of lace follow down the entire glass.

S- dark bittersweet chocolate and caramel, a bit of smokey charcoal, some burnt cocoa

T- smoky roasted malts give way to silky chocolate and caramel notes, smooth oats mid-palate, the finish has just a bit if hops kick and is dry and bitter-sweet

M- medium body, moderate carbonation, silky and velvety mouthfeel with a creamy expulsion finish, this one is exceptionally smooth.

O- an extremely smooth sipper, good roasted chocolaty notes. One of the better I've tried of the style.
